by Agatha Christie

STARRING JUDY CORNWELL as MISS MARPLE with DIANE FLETCHER, SARAH THOMAS, RACHEL BRIGHT plus further star cast to be announced. ‘A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October the thirteenth, at little Paddocks – at six-thirty p.m.’
The residents of Chipping Cleghorn are astonished to read an advert in the local newspaper that a murder will take place this coming Friday at Little Paddocks, the home of Letitia Blacklock.
Unable to resist, the group gather at the house at the appointed time, when the lights go out and a gun is fired. Enter Miss Marple, who must unravel a complex series of relationships and events to solve the mystery of the killer…
Both Judy Cornwell and Diane Fletcher have distinguished careers spanning over 50 years on both stage and screen. Judy Cornwell is probably best known for her much loved portrayal of Daisy in the hugely successful TV sit-com Keeping Up Appearances, while Diane Fletcher is forever immortalised as Elizabeth Urquhart, wife of the murderous chief whip Ian Richardson in House Of Cards. They are joined by Sarah Thomas, who played Glenda Wilkinson on Last Of The Summer Wine for 24 years, and Rachel Bright, (Eastenders’ Poppy Meadow), with further star cast to be announced.
